When you go down the list of amazing clubs and organizations at Sewanee, please heed these two words of advice: PACE YOURSELF.

With more than 80 student organizations, 20+ sororities and fraternities, all manner of leadership opportunities, club sports, varsity sports programs, PE courses, and intramurals, you’ll find at least one thing (or 20) you want to do. And if you don’t see one you like, just start your own, then turn around and look at all the people who already joined it. Because we’re like that.
